The BBC clears it all up for us

BBC News online has a typically muddled article today which talks about mobile phone user interface complexity. For those of us watching at home, Auntie Beeb has decided that "user interface" is an "awkward term" and can explain to you that, "simply put, (this means) the way a device presents its wares and functions, and how to get to them, to people." Much clearer then. I'm glad they've explained it so well. By the way "simply put" is a complicated way of saying that using 19 words where 2 are perfectly sufficient is a jolly fine idea.
